Dear Cortez Families:


For the 2021-2022 academic school year, we will have a new administrative team. We are excited to share that Mrs. Holly Lawrence will be our assistant principal. She was the learning strategist at Cambiero Elementary School. She has served as a strategist for the past 10 years both in Clark County, as well as in Louisville, Kentucky. She has a Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) endorsement; a solid understanding of the teacher Nevada Educator Performance Framework (NEPF); has extensively analyzed data; has doubled SBAC scores and assisted her school with increasing their Nevada School Performance Framework (NSPF) star rating; delivered weekly professional learning; and has coached teachers in best instructional practices. Mrs. Lawrence will be a great addition to our Cortez team. 


Currently, we are eagerly awaiting the announcement of our new principal for the 2021-2022 school year. Please check back for the announcement.
